Theory of Constraints Training Powered By Docstoc
! Every organization has a constraint to better performance. Do you know yours? Do you have the right tools to eliminate weak links in processes and to actively manage a constraint? The Theory of Constraints provides answers to these questions. First developed by physicist Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt - author of numerous businesses books including the bestseller The Goal, the Theory of Constraints (TOC) is now taught in over 1,400 business schools. At The Claymore Group we’ve taken the jargon and mystery that TOC, like other improvement methodologies seem to accumulate and replaced them with clarity and simplicity. We firmly believe that the ROI from TOC should begin immediately and that your own people can make it happen. It’s our goal and purpose to provide the needed training.

One size doesn’t fit all. Our classes can be configured to met your time and scope requirements.

We also offer a full Theory of Constraints Mastery Course which prepares a student to both lead internal TOC projects and to sit for the TOC International Certification Organization’s Fundamentals Exam - the TOC equivalent to a Six Sigma Blackbelt.

All of our classes are designed for adult learners and include relevant hands-on applications in the classroom. As a result, our Mastery Course students have awarded the class a 97.5% effectiveness score based on a 10-factor evaluation.
